Richard and Kathy Beal

We support programs that make a positive difference in the lives of the members of the following communities; youth, elders, animals, and our precious natural environment. We support programs that utilize the sciences and any creative art form as part of the process. We are particularly interested in programs that “cross-pollinate” or bridge these communities; programs that focus on the inter-relationship between them, projects that are mutually beneficial to each community.

For example, children feeding sick or injured rabbits as a way to learn responsibility, animal visits to elder communities to improve mental health, youth vaulting on horses to learn about teamwork and trust, studying ocean creatures as a way for special needs children to gain confidence and self esteem, art classes that focus on environmental issues, etc. The fund is looking for US based 501(c)(3) non-profit programs that have a lasting effect which is clearly measurable.
